MUSICA SURFICA UPDATE:
No doubt some of you may be wondering what's happened to Musica Surfica?
We've got it in two Festivals so far. The Surfilmfestibal08 in San Sebastian has it on opening night (in two weeks time). The New York Surf Film Festival tell me they're opening with it too so I can't tell you how happy I am about that. A great thrill and honour and our thanks to both committees. Also we've got entries into other mainstream festivals and will continue to do so, but how we go there will be interesting as the criteria broaden markedly. That being said, it's so different so who knows?
Over the past couple of months we've also been sorting the marketing plan, I've been designing sleeves, DVD and Soundtrack CD faces, recording directors commentary for the extras (quite a few), trying to make a living and trying to edit a short of the film to send out that gives a sense of MusicaSurfica in two and a half minutes.
Not easy as I was so close to it, and not having done one before what I ended up with was crap, so I went surfing.
So the other day the boys (Simon and Richard, who produced the film) and a young editor who saw it for the first time last week, really liked it and said he'd have a shot, sat down and produced this. The main musical piece is Paganini Caprice 5, as played by Richard and Satu in Derek Hynd's old cheese factory.
I hope you enjoy it.
